Sorry about that-I hit enter-



I need to figure out how to take off the carpeting on the trunk itself. Underneth there are a bunch of snap type screws, and I tried prying them up with a blade screwdriver and broke 2 and decided to stop. Does anyone have any advise as to how to get these things off without breaking every one of them? Thanks.

i dont know if this is the screw that you are talking about or not, but most of the ones in the trunk need the inside bit pulled up a bit first.

if you get a small screwdriver or exacto knife, pull the little circle part of the inside plastic piece up, and then just pull the whole plastice screw up

.....its hard to desribe...sorry!:shrug:

if you broke out the center, then you might want to get a very small flat head screwdriver , pry it out., thats the only way i see it comming out

Its ok, at least your trunk liner has all those little things... my trunk was missing most of them from the factory... Now I'll have to go to the store and look them up....
